Did you know that the Trinity often turned to goddesses to defeat the asuras?
Did you know that the first clone in the world was created by a woman?
The women in Indian mythology might be fewer in number, but their stories of strength and mystery in the pages of ancient texts and epics are many. They slayed demons and protected their devotees fiercely. From Parvati to Ashokasundari and from Bhamati to Mandodari, this collection features enchanting and fearless women who frequently led wars on behalf of the gods, were the backbone of their families and makers of their own destinies.
We love books that give voices to unsung female heroes, goddesses who led fierce wars on behalf of gods, who also were the backbone of their families and people who forged their own paths. India's much-loved and bestselling author Sudha Murty takes you on an empowering journey. Much like The Upside Down King, we are amazed at the stories in this collection, stories we never knew existed! We have only heard of the stories of Draupadi and Sita but what about other great women from the epics and mythologies?
